wow... it looks like the "Toughbook 19 Rugged Tablet PC ".... man.. that thing worth more than $4350!!!!

I am glade that kid was not hurt!

By the way,... I am wondering... since it is a rugged tablet..... can it still boot up after the drop?

That kid is darned luck!

I wonder if the hospital will reward him with a new laptop because of the close call?

wonder if a toughbook like that would've survived a drop like that if the kid cushioned its fall...

not that it's my desired scenario mind you, just wondering... =p

[citation][nom]etanony[/nom]Maybe he'll get a Public Relations helicopter flight[/citation]

And risk the kid falling off the helicopter when it turns?

"Thankfully, nobody was hurt and the only reason why the hospital was called in was to retrieve the computer."

The hospital was called to retrieve the laptop? o_O

We wouldn't want him to hit a laptop.

I must say that going by the picture the laptop took the impact pretty well. That thing is structurally sound.

I would have kept the damned thing and sued the hospital!

A toughbook got destroyed, and lifelink is nearly responsible for harming a child. :D

How bad a$$ would it have been had he caught it out of the air... I mean, it's far more likely if he'd tried to catch it the laptop would have caved in his cranium... but it'd be cool to attempt.
